Description

“This forest was in a poor state before receiving extensive work by the CCC. The enrollees here completed typical projects such as building roads, clearing trails and reforestation, but they also were tasked with reeducating the locals with the idea that public land was to be appreciated and was not simply a place to log, trespass and burn.”
